In lieu of a review of Monday night’s Scratch Acid show at Webster Hall, their first NYC show in many, many years, writer/photographer Keith Marlowe presents this open letter to the band’s frontman:

===================

Dear David Yow,

I love you. I’ve always loved you. I’ve never felt about other singers the way I feel about you. You gave me “HEAD” with the Jesus Lizard, and I want to return the favor. I want to marry you and have your babies. We both hit the sauce hard, so they would probably be all crazy and hideous, with foreheads so huge we could attach windshield wipers. If we ever got bored with our deformed skull babies, we could give them to some shitty no-talent shock-rock band like Slipknot to use as stage props. Or NAMBLA. I don’t care, really. Do you think any of the dudes in NAMBLA have fetal-alcohol-syndrome fetishes? Let’s find out together.

I wouldn’t expect you to be monogamous, because I figure you treat lovers like you do bands. You’ve been in long-term relationships with Scratch Acid, the Jesus Lizard, Qui, and had one night-stands with the Melvins, Helmet, Shellac and Cop Shoot Cop, among others. I’ve caught you numerous times when you’ve flung your body violently into the audience, so you can trust me to catch you during tough emotional times too. I’ll always be there for you, no matter what kind of project you’re involved with, even that western you acted in starring the Insane Clown Posse.

It’s not just about your music either. I’m very physically attracted to you. I’ve seen your dick a bunch of times over the years, and I think it’s super hot. You make great art too, and if the money ever ran out we could live off all the free booze and cheese at your openings, like the one you just had at the Fuse Gallery right here in NYC.

I love you David, and I hope that someday, you’ll love me back. Because that would be the “Greatest Gift” of all.

Yours truly,
Keith
